X Factor Creative Director Brian Friedman on who in 1D can’t dance: ‘Zayn, he just doesn’t have it. He’s got rhythm, he can’t learn choreography, he gets really intimidated and scared and can’t remember it.. They didn’t do too well with dancing when I was working with them so they should stick with what they do best and that’s making girls swoon and singing.
It’s not that they can’t handle it, some are better than others, no names to be mentioned, but it’s not what they’re about. They’re not a dancy boyband kind of thing, they’re just about youth an exuberance and making girls swoon.’
